I had problems with the older version working on mine but got the newer version and it works great. Too bad I already had drilled the holes!

thya are sold already, I never had a problem with any of them and no drive issues on my tiger at all. when I spoke to Paul at simrek(his name backwards) and he told me of the temps and the thought process it all made sense. I had broken one of the originals when i first got the tiger and ran all weekend with only one, when i slowed down the steam coming off that one drive was incredible, not to mention the salt and lime that was baked to it from the bay... my vote is still for simrek.

Personally, I had 3 Simreks break at the side holes on my 03 Formula 382 w/ 575's! Paul at the company was real good about it & took care of me.

Billet Marine circulates water through the cap itself as opposed to "splashing" the top of it. It is superior in cooling and takes out one of the weak links in all bravo's.....cap deflection. It is not cheap....but you get what you pay for. If you are running north of 600hp...it will pay for itself time and time again. One of the best investments you can make on a bravo.

Not yet....working on it though. I have had to change a ton of rigging. My back has put the brakes on the operation to a large degree also. I will let you know as soon as do. My prediction is drive disaster.

We have a couple options for your Topgun depending on what style you like better. We offer the rigid tube style from Just Wicked Marine like this that comes with a Limited Lifetime warranty for only $119.99 and comes with all the tools and hardware you need to install. You can view test results here. Hardin Marine has also released their brand new CAD designed top cap style drive shower made from premium 316L stainless steel and that can be purchased for $129.99 plus the XR finned cap install kit for $17.99. You can view that here.

What ever your drive shower needs are we have you covered.







Much more right at your fingertips!
